    Note 8 is my only phone at the moment. However last night I saw a sale on Tmobile for a certified used Lg V20 for just $280 so I ordered it, expecting it to deliver tomorrow. I thoght it would be a good idea to have a 2nd phone again and to occasionally give my Note 8 a little break

    I traded in an LG V20 when I bought my note 8. That's a great price for a very good phone. You'll like the double camera. The 32 bit quad DAC sound is the best I've heard on a phone. The 2nd screen on top for notifications is very useful, and I truely miss the IR blaster and I wish the note series still had that feature.

    I think that you'll miss the S-pen. Overall, I think you've made a good choice for a part-time phone.

    I used to always keep a decent one as backup but the Note 8 was so great I got rid of everything else, few days later it started acting up and had to go in for a warranty repair, not wanting to wait 10/12 days... I now have 2 Note 8, I will forever have two top end devices now, when note 9 comes out I'll sell one of the 8 to subsidise the price... etc.... etc...

    Do you use two different sim cards, or just swap between?

    If you swap, how do you handle all the transfer stuff? (And don't forget samsung is just about to kill off storage for third party apps)

    Note 8 is definitely my daily main phone. I like giving it a break now and then. Plus for the price on the V20 good backup

    I'm on Tmobile and plan to swap the sim. When I get the phone tomorrow I'll set it up lile I have the Note 8. Sometimes I may just go with the Tmobile Digits and not switch Sims, but most of the time I'll probably switch.

    Still have my S3 watch so samsung pay alwayd available to me.

    I backup my stuff with Google and use Google photos cloud for all my photo storage.

    I don't. I want to have another phone since I'm a phone nerd but I just can't stand to spend money on two different phones.

    If anything I would have an iPhone to get the best of all worlds. Having two Android's would be redundant to me.

    My Note8 is my main phone, but my trusty Note4 is my ingress phone. Much safer to use that than wandering around outside playing ingress. Must say the Note4 is still a perfectly usable phone.

    How do you do the switch? More than one sim?

    How about data usage? And how do you sync stuff?

    I keep my Note 3 as a secondary phone now. The wife took my old Note 4 and gave me her Note 3 complete with cracked screen
    I use it for screen casting etc, keeping my Note 8 clean in the meantime lol.

    I go between 3 phones...and now 4.

    Note 8 is daily + Gear S3
    Custom iPhone 6s 128 + Apple Watch
    LG V20 + LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE

    And I bought a HTC M9+ for nostalgia. I miss their build quality.

    Note 8 because everything is better.
    iPhone for imessage or if I don't have much to do on my phone.
    LG V20 is my TRAVEL phone. Listen to music with those sexy DACs while offline on a plane.

    I use the same SIM for all of them, and switch my 256gb Micro SD to have music and Emulators wherever I go. Never know if you want to bust open some Faxanadu!

    T-Mobile for service.

    I had the Lg G6 very briefly - only got it specifically to get JOD to get into the Note 8 which I did. Gave my son my previous main phone S8+ once the Note 8 came in and I got past the initial "burning up Note 7 flashback" concern.

    I have two lines. one for Android one for iPhone. One sim always stays in my iPhone X, and on Android I switch between Note 8 and Pixel XL2. Android is the main line though.

    That's a good deal. I got my LG v20 back when I had to give up the note7. It's a good phone. I play with it every now and then. But I'm just to of a note person to stick with it long. I did have the iPhone 7 plus but traded it in to Verizon when I got my blue note8. Still had $445 left to pay off on it but it was credit when I sent them the phone. Sorry I'm rambling lol. Didn't need to put all that haha. But anyways v20 is good phone. Especially at that price.

    Lol thanks Jewels. I think it's a good 2nd phone. Note 8 is great and definitely the main phone. I had the V20 previous to owning the Note 8 - went through an ugly "can't make up my mind" issue with phones during the NOte 7 debacle.

    I swap sims between the phones. I keep all of my contacts and calendar in Google's services. So i can always have a back up of everything including email (gmail and outlook) through their web interfaces and they sync to my devices as well. The only think I don't back up is text messages. But I can always take a screenshot something important.
    I just sign out of iMessage when switching from my iPhone. I've been doing this for several years now with different phones......

    Then is use an app called iSyncr to sync all of my iTunes music and playlists toi my Android phones.

    Lol no problem. Yeah I had the same problem when the note7 thing happened. I actually got the iPhone 7 plus first and I'm like what the heck did I do? Never had an iPhone before that so I was bored lol and well it just wasn't for me so then I got the v20 played with that for awhile then gave it to my fiance and I straight up went back to my note5(sold that) til I got the black note8. Then when the deep sea blue note8 came out I got that and my fiance got the black note8 and now v20 just sitting here as a back up lol. V20 probably be my back up phone til note9 comes out then my note8 will be back up and I'll sell my v20. Lol. I think that note7 messed a lot of people up.

    Pixel 2 XL, Note 8 and iPhone X here. Shuffle between them but use them all regularly in some form.

    iPhone X and Note 8, two sims and shared data. Love having the best of both worlds, and the ability to disconnect from work from time to time.
